I’m a guy. A trans guy, but I am still a guy. However, I am far from your typical guy (both trans* and cis).
I often joke that my gender is peacock, because that is how I feel most of the time. A male peacock is the perfect descriptor for me. I’m flashy, loud, outspoken, opinionated, brightly colored, and love being the center of attention. While my gender occasionally does fluctuate, it always has the basis of male. I’ve always seen my body and identity as having a male base to build off of, despite being Female Assigned At Birth – or FAAB, which is a perfect acronym for me.
I am no less trans*, a man, or anything else for being a peacock.
